Nice day

Sunday, June 28, 2009

DH took a nap and turned the air conditioning waaayyyyy down. So, I spent the time outside! emoticon I read my book, drank a mojito and almost fell asleep. As soon as I finish making tomorrow's dinner, I'm heading back out there. I shouldn't be cold in the summer!!! emoticon

    My DH and I are constantly struggling over the a/c when it's hot! He hates the heat and will blast it till it's like a icebox in here - I love summer and want to soak up the warmth while we've got it!

200 Squats Challenge...

Sunday, June 28, 2009

Done! I did 70 squats on my initial test, so I decided to start at week three. I did the first two days and then got off track. So, today I decided to see how many I could do. I got to 70 and thought Okay, I can keep going. At 125, I was feeling it, but not dying. At 150 I HAD to finish. My legs were a little rubbery at the end, but I did it!! Yippee!!! We'll see how loudly my legs yell at me tomorrow. emoticon

Before that, I did week 3, day 3 of the Hundred Pushup Challenge. I should have done it a week and a half ago and either forgot or didn't feel like it. Guess what?!? Pushups are hard! I got them all done, but with lots of rests in between. I need to be a little more consistent. Monday will be day 1, week 4. After I finish this, I will start the 200 sit up challenge. Maybe I'll actually finish that one in the six weeks!


My favorite part...

of the Jonas Brothers concert (besides the end emoticon) was when they sang Neil Diamond's song Sweet Caroline. I spent most of the evening watching the horn section (they were the coolest!) and trying to figure out how the lights, moving stages, etc. In my next life, I'm going to be a roadie! Or stage manager or light guy/girl! They have the coolest jobs!!

    Oh, man... Sweet Caroline... that takes me back! I'm impressed the Jonas Bros would perform that - I don't know much about them - no teen girls in my house! They seem very sweet when I do catch a glimpse of them on Disney Channel, or where ever... Did any of the young girls know any of the words, or was it all parents singing along?? Did you take a sign to hold up?

Thanks for the comment on my new background!

    Hey your mind works the way your mind works!!! I used to be a roadie (I was married to a country western musician for eleven years), it's not all it's cracked up to be....the roadie or being married to him - LOL!! But I'm sure the kids enjoyed the concert and good for you for going with them! You didn't say anything about them complaining so I assume they enjoyed it and that you weren't too nerdie(?) or embarrass them too much! Hope you have a good rest of the week end!

OMG!! Jonas Brothers Concert!

Friday, June 26, 2009

LOL!! I am going to the Jonas Brothers concert tomorrow night. I'm taking my 13-year old daughter and her best friend. They are very excited, so I guess it's a good thing. It should be fun. I did tell daughter dearest that I was going to make a sign and hold it up the whole concert! She encouraged me not to! emoticon


The week is flying by

Thursday, June 25, 2009

I think because I was looking forward to today so much! Today was the first day of softball practice. 14 of us showed up to play. We need a LOT of work!! None of us are rock-on excellent players, but we are all there to play and give 100% effort and to have fun.

I got to play catcher. In this league, if a man pitches, a woman must catch and vice versa. We have two guys who pitch and I was the only woman willing to catch. I LOVE catching!! Woo HOOO!!! Got to practice batting a little too. I wasn't the worst...okay, maybe I was. I still hit the ball and made it around the bases. Tomorrow is a scrimmage. I know, already! emoticon I just hope they are as rusty as we are!! emoticon
